It takes time and experience to understand the specific needs of each customer and each haul. If you have a load to transport, you need to be partnered with the right company that can ship with your specific needs in mind. Here are some situations where you need an experienced and knowledgeable freight carrier.
Heavy Haul Transportation | Oversized & Over-Dimensional Freight Transport
We offer a specialty freight service that manages oversized and over dimensional loads. Our logistics managers are capable of working with you in order to identify the best solution so that you can get freight to where it belongs.
Hazmat transport is a necessity across various industries. There are unique concerns and a variety of paperwork that needs to be filled out in order to transport such items as corrosives, oxidizers, poisons, and gases. Special care is required during loading, unloading, and throughout transport. We work with carriers who have the necessary hazmat training and who are capable of following the protocol. We remain vigilant with the laws and regulations as it pertains to hazmat, and this should provide you with peace of mind knowing that we can handle all of the details.
Over-The-Road (OTR) Expedited Shipping
At TransAmerica Express, we understand that you may need supplies delivered immediately, whether it is because of a sudden peak in demand or raw materials were lost in a disaster. Rather than waiting for a standard delivery, we can provide the necessary OTR expedited freight services to meet your current demands.
From food to flowers to wine, we have shipped a variety of items that need to remain climate control from Point A to Point B. We work with some of the best carriers, and our state-of-the-art technology allows you to track shipments and contact drivers in the event that you need to confirm the climate at any time during shipment
You may not want to share a truck with other companies because of the amount of freight or because you are looking for a more customized service. We offer dedicated Fleet solutions to all of our customers, regardless of how much freight you are looking to ship.
Port and Rail (Drayage)
Sometimes drayage is needed to complete a transport and we can help make sense of the entire project. With drayage, full containers can be moved from port or rail directly to the consignee. It can also move empty containers back and forth from shipper to port or rail. Again- we will be able to navigate the waters and help your delivery come on time as requested.

We are able to communicate your specific requirements to everyone involved. Trucks with liftgates and pallet jacks are available and can be easily arranged by a good freight company.
